Developed over a period of 100 years the Alexander Technique has helped people to successfully manage a wide variety of conditions, including back pain, stress, anxiety, ME, and asthma.


The Alexander Technique is not a therapy or an exercise program. It is an in-depth study of how human reaction, co-ordination and movement play a part in everything we do. It has enhanced the performance of athletes, actors, singers and musicians.

Body, Breath and Being explores the Alexander Technique through the experiences of those who have studied it and benefited from it. These include:

  • A keen amateur sportsman who was 'reborn' after being resigned to a lifetime of pain.
  • A photographer who overcame a debilitating back problem that was interfering with his professional work.
  • A pregnant woman who used the technique to relieve indegestion and handle her changing posture.
  • A musician who managed an asthmatic problem that was affecting her playing.

Body, Breath and Being:

  • Is ideal for both beginner and expert
  • Includes over 100 full colour photographs and diagrams
  • Provides practical experiments in every chapter
  • Includes free access to audio files at which give detailed instructions and advice.

The book offers a new view of the way we use our bodies and the consequences not only on our health, but also our approach to life
